Kashan Rugs : Between Isfahan and Tehran, near the Dast-e-Kavir desert is the city of Kashan. The city is known for its handmade rugs, textiles and ceramics. The famous Ardebil rug that is found in the Victoria and Albert Museum is thought to have been woven in Kashan in the 16th century. Since 1800 began the organized production of handmade rugs from very renowned weavers in Kashan. The Kashan rugs gained a solid reputation and their success is due to three factors: the great variety of beautiful designs with fine colours, the soft shiny wool that gives a smooth surface to the rugs and the fact that many weavers come from nearby Isfahan who are capable and renowned rug artisans.

Classic rugs: Rugs that are woven in urban centres in fixed workshops and looms(as opposed to nomads). Their designs are first done on paper by rug designers. These designs are strictly conducted by the weaver during the manufacturing. Even in these rugs, though there may be slight variations in weaving.

Horizontal or vertical shading in the rug pile: The shading is due to folding the rug during transportation. When the rug is laid and stepped-on they will vanish. Examples

Abrash: Due to the different amount of grease in the wool and the added salt during the process of dyeing, the wool has got a varying colour absorbance. This is not very visible before weaving. During the weaving though, lines of the same colour are formed in the rug. This is called Abrash (which in Farsi means little cloud) and it shows that the wool was not manufactured using chemical means and marks the naturalness and authenticity of the rugs. Examples
